I have 15 years of experience developing and testing applications written in procedural languages including C and C like languages. I have developed web applications, language compilers, and office automation software using C and C++. My experience includes writing applications for Linux, Windows, and smartphones in C and Objective. I also have 5 years of experience evaluated safety critical embedded software written in C and assembly language. My approach to teaching C is to briefly introduce students to top down programming concepts, and to follow up with teaching the syntax and semantics unique to C. I also cover debugging and testing techniques. My instruction can also cover the use of the C library and other development libraries.

I have twenty years of experience developing and testing applications using in C++ and C++ like object oriented programming languages. I have taught object oriented programming at Durham Community College. My experience includes writing applications for Linux and Windows PC systems as well as embedded systems and smartphones using object oriented programming languages. I have also been employed to evaluate safety critical software written in C++ and other object oriented languages. My approach to teaching C++ is to introduce students to object oriented programming concepts, and then to teach the students the syntax and semantics unique to C++. I also cover the use of the standard C++ library. For more advanced students, I can also cover design patters used in C++ programs. I will set my pace and starting point based on the students current programming experience level.

Calculus,

Calculus

As a student, I received excellent grades in Calculus and differential equations in college, and as an electrical engineer, I have had years of experience applying those concepts. I am able to teach difficult math concepts by relating them to everyday concepts with which the student is familiar. Whether you need help to keep up with your class, prepare for an upcoming test, or qualify for AP credit, I can help you reach your goal. I have experience teaching Calculus to high school students, college students, and to students who need to complete math courses to qualify for graduate and business programs.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

As a college student, I received an award for having the highest average in chemistry of all of the students in the my freshman class. I have been very successful in reproducing that level of achievement with my students by providing them with an organized approach for solving chemistry problems on exams.
Physics,

Physics

As a college student I double majored in engineering and physics, and I thoroughly enjoy tutoring and discussing those subjects. I have had good success in tutoring college and high school students in mechanics, optics, and in preparing high school students for taking SAT II test in Physics. In explaining difficult concepts in physics to new students, I make use of analogies with everyday concepts that the student is familiar with so that those concepts are understood and not merely memorized.

Excellent Tutor, A++!!!

Isaac literally guides you step by step to complete your assignment. Very detailed with his steps and easy to understand. Isaac is the go to person for your lesson.

Jacob, 1 lesson with Isaac

Isaac is terrific

Isaac is helping my son get up to speed in pre calc after a year without math due to block schedule. He is also helping with AP Physics. We have already seen great results due to Isaac’s practical approach. He is making both subjects understandable with his explanations but also giving my son real life scenarios and allowing him to work through the thinking. Great experience. I believe with Isaac's guidance my son will excel in both of these difficult classes. Thank you, Isaac!

Tracey, 4 lessons with Isaac

Patient and knowledgeable

Issac was an awesome tutor. He helped me understand the problem and how to use the debugger ide in c. I like how we planned on how to approach the problem before we code and explained the information on the online board. Would definitely recommend to anyone who needs help in c.

Kareem, 1 lesson with Isaac

Very helpful and knowledgeable

Isaac is very clear and concise with his explanations. We went over "tokeninizing" in c++ and using readline from the GNU C++ complier instead of iostream for input. He carefully explained everything and helped better understand the C++ syntax.

Awesome Tutor Session

Issac was great. He really helped me understand the material and complete the project that I was struggling with. I will definitely contact him again as I work through my course. He was knowledgeable about the information and presented it in a way that I could understand the material.

Sean, 18 lessons with Isaac

A scholar and a gentleman.

He's super knowledgeable and can quickly adapt to the situation. He has a unique way to look at a problem and figure out a path that can lead the student to the solution.
